In the week ending Sunday, viewers watched over 341.2 million hours of the first season of Wednesday, which was released on November 23 and is about Wednesday Addams and the Addams family, Netflix said.

In June, Netflix viewers set the streaming service’s previous record by watching over 335 million hours of Stranger Things 4 in a single week, after the first batch of episodes of the latest season of the sci-fi series were released.

Stranger Things 4 still holds the title for the most-watched Netflix English-language series in its first 28 days on the platform, with 1.35 billion hours viewed.

1.65 billion. That’s how many hours of Squid Game were watched in its first 28 days on Netflix last year, making it the most-watched series on the platform in that time frame overall.

Online News Magazine Key Background

Half of the top ten most-watched English-language series in 28 days on Netflix were released this year. In addition to Stranger Things 4, DAHMER: Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story (856.2 million hours watched), the second season of Bridgerton (656.2 million hours watched), Inventing Anna (555.1 million hours watched) and season 4 of Ozark (491 million hours watched) all made the list. And while this year was one of monster traffic for Netflix, it was also the first time in ten years the streaming service lost subscribers, with more than a million people leaving Netflix in the first six months of this year, though it has since rebounded.
